Focusing on what you want

If you focus intently on what you want (a flat stomach, a lower weight, making great choices, eating slowly, working out), and put your energy into these things, it's easy to achieve them.

Imagining beautiful places I've been helps me finish tough cardio workouts.

When I feel like I'm hitting the wall during a spinning class or on the elliptical, I let my mind drift away to beautiful places I've been and imagine myself cruising through them. Imagining that I am cycling through the woods or running through the farmer's fields of Illinois helps me to overcome feelings of, "I can't do it" and "I have to quit now." After a few minutes of visualization, I can re-focus my attention on my workout without the emotional obstacles I had before.

Self Imagery and self talk

You don't go on a road trip without a destination. You don't start cooking or baking without knowing what you are making. Your mind knows only one reality and it is what you tell it.
Self imagery and self talk are the two most important things about the new or final you.

Take 1 minute to Meditate

Even if you do not know how to meditate, just take 1 minute a day to be still and uninterupted. "See" yourself in the fitter healthier you.

Visualize Success

I use visualization to help me. When I see something about someone that I admire I visualize myself obtaining it (defined armes, strong core, etc). I also research it to determine what path is best to obtain my goals and visualize myself on various points of the path. It works!

Tip To Skip Fast Food

I used to visualize what I'd eat from fast food before I pulled into the drive-thru! Now, I envision how it's filled with saturated fat, how off-track my nutrition tracker would be, and how it's mostly NON-FOOD! It works!

Visualize Being Thinner

Having trouble picturing yourself lithe and lean? Next time you look in the mirror, move over to the right or the left, until you see about how you want one side to look. I know it's an illusion, but it's really interesting.

Positive Thinking on my way to work...

It takes me less than 15 minutes to get to my work from home, in that time I play my favorite music out loud and I sing along. At the same time I visualize the day, in positive terms. By the time I arrive to the school where I work I feel energize and ready to go for it, no matter how early it is or how tired I am. I truly believe my students deserve a happy teacher.

I declare that it is and it will be an emoticon day!!!!

Write your success story now - as if you've already reached your goals!

Take some time to write your success story now, as if you've already reached your goals. Write about the obstacles you encountered, and how you over came them. Write about the feelings you had as you reached the short-term goals along the way and end with how you felt when you reached your ultimate long-term goal. Explain how your life has changed, and all the feelings and such that have come along with achieving your desired weight, or fitness-related goals.

Visualization is the Key

When breaking a bad habit, picture yourself doing the right thing. For example, picture yourself getting out of bed, brushing your teeth, and getting right into your workout. Picture it several times and associate it with other everyday cues. It's amazing how much easier it will be to get it done! emoticon

Visualization

Every morning, before I get out of bed, I sit in a quiet yoga pose for 15 minutes and visualize my day. I congratulate myself on yesterday's successes, forgive the slips and commit to my plan today. I see myself preparing breakfast and packing my lunch. I breathe deeply and get calm. emoticon

Visualize!

I visualize...focusing in on a single body part which, for me is usually my belly because I want a fit flat belly so badly. I close my eyes and can see myself as the FIT version of me, I WILL be! I get excited and motivated by seeing this image in my mind; I'm ready to go out to make it happen!

Act like the weight you want to be

I don't act like a heavy person trying to lose weight. I act like the weight I want to be, meaning I visualize what that person eats, how much they eat, and how they exercise. I consider the things they would or wouldn't do and act accordingly. It keeps my process forward thinking.

A True Visual

Once I decided I wanted to shed 90 pounds, I bought an outfit in the size I will be when I lose it. I keep the outfit hanging prominently in my closet. I even took a picture of it with my cellphone. Anytime I feel my resolve slipping, I take a look at my outfit and remember what it's all about.

When I was trying to lose weight, i visualized myself standing on a scale showing one pound lesser than my actual weight on a pre-determined date.
